A superior aluminum alloy makes a superior performance racing cylinder
Luxfer aluminum cylinders are manufactured from L6X®, a proprietary formula of aluminum alloy 6061-T6 developed by Luxfer metallurgists to provide superior corrosion-resistance and dependable performance in the most demanding racing environments. Compared to conventional alloys, L6X has been optimized to improve durability, fracture toughness and resistance to cracking and tearing, even under high pressures over long periods. More than 50 million Luxfer cylinders manufactured from L6X alloy have an exemplary record for safety, long service life and reliable performance.
Luxfer carbon composite cylinders: the lightest-weight racing cylinders available
Luxfer carbon-composite cylinders feature aluminum liners wrapped with super-durable, aerospace-grade carbon composite fiber. The lightest-weight, most compact high-pressure cylinders for racing applications, Luxfer carbon composite cylinders weight up to 70 percent less than steel cylinders and 30 percent less than aluminum cylinders. Extremely durable, easy-care materials assure long cylinder life.
